buds too fluffy?????

i harvested my white widow and let dry till the stem snapped.then i just put it in a mason jar. now when i usually buy bud from someone its more dense and compact. the stuff i picked is dry but its all fluffy and you can tell its homegrown. any ideas on why this is???

light intensity is #1 and perhaps feeding program may be number two. I would look at my lights forstly and dial in the intensity. Mine can be very dense with strong light.

Good luck!

sometimes you just don't wind up with super dense buds when it's all said and done. It's all about many things combined....strain, growing conditions, flower time etc etc...

did you do a FULL cure? how long were the buds in the jars before you dipped your hands in?

and for the record.....ain't a damn thing wrong with being able to tell it's "homegrown" *lol*

Sometimes buds are "rolled". You can let the bud dry for 24-48hours after the chop and then take the buds and gently roll them in your hand like playdoh. The more pressure you apply the tighter and smaller the bud will get. Another way they get compressed is from being jammed into a curing jar as to leave very little air space or as in commercial it is jammed into bags or vacuum sealed making it more compressed and dense. BUT both Avid and MM are right as well. Sometimes its lights and enviroment and sometimes thats just how the bud comes out..

dont even dare compare the homegrown and commercial.. i agree the commercial is dense.. but im sure 2 grams of your homegrown would beat 5 of the regs any fucking day

The WW I've grown has always been pretty dense bud, but the first time i ever had it it was very fluffy but it was the best as far as trichs, taste, and potency. Lights are a major factor, as is everything else already stated above. The pressen em in the jars is a good method though for compacting them and also making look like they didnt just come straight out your garden, you know keepin it ninja like.

a water cure may tighten them up, and you can try this with already cured bud.

9 times out of 10 the main cause of airy loose buds is the grower harvested too early...WW always produces dense resiny bud............but you must wait 10 ~ 12 weeks of 12/12 to get them to that stage

perhaps the seeds you grew were not WW?

and who mentioned water cure?...have you ever tried it? or is High Times spruiking this method this month as the bee's knees? sheesh...if you want your bud to shrink in size and weight, be tasteless, look exactly like cheap tea and crumbles to dust when herb grinded then please, knock yourself out... go right ahead a do your water cure

the only reason you would even thin of water curing is when the tree falls over in a storm into a mud or there are so many chemicals and ferts in the bud that it burns with a black ash and tastes like ass..even then you are better off just kiffing the guts out the bud and then smoke the kif and throw away the de-kiffed bud

light intensity is definately a factor. i believe cooler temps in mid to late flower has an effect on density as well.
